Ace Combat Assault Horizon gets Tekken skins, no idols

Fans of unrealistic jet fighter combat and fun cross-franchise promotion are in luck, because Namco Bandai have announced their latest pack of download content for Call of Duty: Modern Air War Ace Combat Assault Horizon. This time it comes in the form of a pair of Tekken-themed skins. Come November 15th, you too can pay too much money ($4.99) to make your jet fighter look like Jin Kazama or Kazuya Mishima.

I'm all for ridiculous cross-promotions, but what I want to see next are Idolm@ster-themed skins. Namco Bandai did that for Ace Combat 6, selling sweet paint jobs based on the many idols of 765 Productions (sample pictures in the gallery). Many players considered the planes game-breakers, as they came with stats designed to reflect each idol's personality. The Su-47 Berkut -Miki EX-, for one, had a level of maneuverability that defied physics. 

That's a jet fighter I'd pay too much money for.
